Dell Streak Coming ''Late July'' (Next Week)

We've seen plenty of the Dell Streak thanks to various different leaks, preview videos and, eventually, demonstrations by Dell itself. However, we still don't have a concrete release date for the device. It went on sale last month in the UK with a projected U.S. availability of 'later in the summer.' However, the latest on the Streak is that it will be available for purchase on our side of the pond starting next week.

Engadget reports that the Dell U.S. product page for the Streak lists a scheduled availability of "late July." With just nine days left in July, AT&T and Dell will have to get their skates on if they want to make that deadline.

The Streak packs Android (2.1 out of the box with a 2.2 roll-out scheduled for September), a 5-inch touchscreen, two cameras (5-megapixel rear-facing and one on the front for video calling), 512 MB ROM, 512 MB SDRAM, 2GB of internal storage (expandable by MicroSD) and a 1GHz Snapdragon CPU.

    The only reason not to get this is: AT&T!

    5 inches? As sweet as it may look, I think it's a little too big for a "phone".

    ... and let's hope it doesn't come with spyware.

    Seriously. Everything I have read also says it's 1.6 with an update to 2.2 promised this year. The 1.6 was the only apprehension I had about this 'phone'. If it has 2.1 then I will go ahead and get it. I am already signed up for Dell's 24-hour presale with the $0.99 headset and free shipping.
